Once you have your top performing pins already, do these 2 tricks.

1. Keep pinning your top performing pins

Since these pins are converting into clicks, give them the boost they need to go viral by consistently pinning them manually or using Tailwind

These pins are already proven to get people's attention so you have to keep these pins circulating on Pinterest. 

2. Use the same headline in your top clicked pins

If one pin is getting a lot of clicks it could be the catching headline. Try using the same headlines to make multiple pins for the same post. 

Pinterest loves new pins and the easiest way to make new pins without publishing new contents is to make new pin graphics for your old posts. 

To make new pins fast use Free pre-made pin graphics that you can easily edit in Canva.  

Other important things to consider with your pins 


- Use power words to trigger clicks


The fonts and colors should be easy to read and visible on mobile. Bigger fonts work best to highlight powerful words and capture people's attention.

Use a compelling image that catches your reader’s eyes. Images should be close up and clear. 


The optimal pin size as per Pinterest are 600x900 or 1000x1500 pexels. You can go longer by 600x1260. 


Using keywords on Pin description is a great way to be found on Pinterest. Take this opportunity as well to get people's interest to click and read your content.

That is how you find your TOP PINS on Pinterest. These pins have a high engagement already that Pinterest likes. Why not trigger them to go viral by manually pinning them or scheduling them on Tailwind. The idea is to consistently circulate your top converting pins on Pinterest.
